In Europe, this would be categorized as a compact MPV. I asked my educated colleagues what they thought, and now, I ask you.
Here's how it went down:
Máté: Guys, what would you call a Skoda Roomster in America?
Máté: It's not a wagon and it's not a minivan because no sliding doors.
Jason: Why is it not a wagon? The height?
Máté: Because it's taller.
Máté: So, everything is a crossover. Got it.
Jason: Maybe? I'm not sure about crossover.
Patrick: Small van?
Jason: It's closer to a Colt Vista or a Honda Wagovan.
Andrew: Small minivan?
Máté: We call these compact MPVs.
Jason: Maybe MPV.
Patrick: I would call it a small van.
Andrew: compact MPV=minivan in America, I reckon.
Raph: What do we call a Kia Soul?
Jason: Technically, probably 5-door hatch. I think it fits the wagon criteria.
Raph: I always liked the name wagovan.
Jason: Wagon works well. It implies what this is.
Travis: Wouldn't this just be a small crossover?
Jason: Crossover I thought was more SUV-car as opposed to car/van.
Raph: Before crossover, we had CUV. And before that we had compact MPV though no so much in America.
Well, you tell me!
